Frequently Asked Questions

How much is Spectrum internet? And how fast is it?

Spectrum internet comes with only one plan, but it’s priced at a fairly reasonable $44.99 per month for your first 12 months—and that’s for some zippy 200 Mbps speeds. In terms of what’s available from other internet providers in the Dallas–Fort Worth area (DFW), that’s a pretty good deal. Especially since Spectrum internet comes with no contracts and no data caps.

How do I change my Frontier Wi-Fi password?

To change your Frontier Wi-Fi password, look for your network name (SSID) and password on the back, side, or bottom of your Frontier router. Once you have that, follow these steps:

  1. Depending on which brand of router you have, you’ll have a special web address you can use to access your router’s settings. (To find this, just Google the brand of router plus “router login.” (For example, “arris router login” would be your search if you have an ARRIS router.)
  2. Enter the IP address for your router’s dashboard and go to the wireless/Wi-Fi setup section.
  3. Change your password and be sure to save it. This is also where you can change the name of your wireless network if you like.
How can I use the internet without a provider?

If you need to use the internet but don’t yet have a provider, the best place to go is your local library. Most have Wi-Fi and computers for you to use—and they’re usually free.

What internet service is in the Dallas–Fort Worth (DFW) area?

The DFW metro area has more than a few internet services to choose from, including AT&T, Spectrum, Suddenlink, Windstream, and Frontier.

What is AT&T Fiber?

AT&T Fiber is fiber-optic internet that provides faster download and upload speeds than cable or DSL in select areas of the US. While fiber internet is still mainly limited to large cities and the coasts, you can find it in Dallas and Fort Worth. If you have the choice between cable and fiber but you like to game online or stream lots of video, we say fiber all the way.

Dallas Residential Internet Coverage

If you live in the Dallas–Fort Worth (DFW) metro area, chances are you’ve got access to broadband internet speeds of at least 25 Mbps. That’s great news since 21% of the US can’t stream Cowboys games at those speeds—you’re one of the lucky ones.

Dallas, Fort Worth, and many of the area’s suburbs are covered by AT&T and Spectrum. But you may find you have a few more Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to choose from depending on which neighborhood or suburb you live in. Not that those aren’t good choices—AT&T usually offers lower-priced plans and Spectrum’s internet service comes with no data caps.

 

Fort Worth

(Arlington Heights, Crestwood, Linwood, Monticello, Ridgmar, and Westover Hills)

Along with AT&T and Spectrum, certain neighborhoods in Fort Worth can get their fill of all things internet with Windstream. Or get their fill with a juicy Cowtown Deluxe burger from Kincaid’s. Pardon our tummy rumbles—even the thought makes us hungry.

 

Dallas

(North Dallas and Northwest Dallas)

If you call North or Northwest Dallas home, you’ve got a choice between Windstream, AT&T, and Spectrum.

Any of these three ISPs is a great choice for buying Mavs tickets online. But we like Windstream for no long-term contracts, AT&T for service that’s easy on the wallet, and Spectrum for a boatload of data.

 

Dallas–Fort Worth Suburbs

(Allen, Denton, Frisco, Garland, Irving, Plano, and Richardson)

Prefer the quiet life to the thrills of the big city? You’ve still got your choice of ISPs out in the suburbs—namely AT&T, Spectrum, and Frontier.

While Frontier doesn’t extend its service to downtown Dallas or Fort Worth, the lush green hinterlands can enjoy its internet service—which comes with a two-year price guarantee. Yes, please. Who needs Six Flags season tickets when you have a Frontier internet connection for kid-friendly entertainment?

 

Areas East of Dallas

In towns like Rockwall and Terrell you can sign up for AT&T, Frontier, and Suddenlink service. It’s nice to know that even if you live in a more rural part of the Dallas–Fort Worth area, you still have choices when it comes to internet.

All three ISPs will get you the speeds you need, but some of their extra perks may entice you even more. AT&T is typically the lowest-priced option, and if you opt for its 10–100 Mbps plan, it connects you to the fastest speed—up to 100 Mbps—in your area.

Frontier gives you a two-year price guarantee, so if you plan on calling the great state of Texas home for a while, there’s no need to worry about price hikes. And Suddenlink has a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you have a full month to put its service to the test—and say “no thanks” if it doesn’t meet your needs.

 

Highest-Rated Internet Service Providers in Dallas

Of the four ISPs available in the DFW area, AT&T ranked highest for overall customer satisfaction in our 2018 ISP satisfaction survey, and Suddenlink wasn’t far behind. That’s great news for North Central Texans—especially since Spectrum and Windstream were close runners-up.
